Located just a few minutes walk from the Duomo, UB is a fairly recent and very unique shop, adding to a growing number of vintage artifact boutiques in Florence. UB, a home furnishings and accessories shop with found objects, vintage pieces, fabrics, art, and jewelry, includes an inherited archive of fabulous Florentine wall paper rolls from 1966-on. UB is Ubaldo Pierantoni, who is also involved in the creative, fun, and organic kitchen Circolo Aurora with his sister Rita in San Frediano neighborhood.
You can still see a highlighted collection of contemporary art jewelry made with paper by LerènieS. With a general color scheme of black, red and newsprint, some of these pieces seem to be made of heavy wood and rope, but instead are made with lightweight eco-friendly recycled papers and vinyl glue. Two artists, originally from Sardinia, create these sculptural unique pieces that are simultaneously primitive and contemporary, many inspired by ancient sculptures, tribal figures, tombs, and customary dress.
